Most commonly with pulmonary valvar stenosis, the pulmonary valve leaflets are thickened and fused together along their separation lines (commissures).

Isolated Pulmonary Stenosis is considered to be rare congenital anomalies. It is the most common cause of congenital outflow tract obstruction, resulting in decreased flow from right ventricle to pulmonary artery. It is a Cyanotic CHD.
